For me one of the most relaxing days is New Years Day kicking back with our family and close friends together watching football on the big screen at my sister’s house. Every year I bring my Mini Spicy Cajun Corn Dip Cups, which are mini corn tortilla “cups” filled with creamy, spicy, cheesy cajun corn dip made with Tabasco and baked. So easy, yummy, and mini! They are always a hit. You have to make a lot because they go fast!

Every other day when I am on a diet (wait, don’t tell me I’m the only one that does that) I look for ingredients that add flavor without adding additional calories.

Why I use Frozen Foods

Why I Use Frozen

Since I work full time and blog part time full-time, and do my best to take care of my husband and an elderly parent, it can sometimes get ridiculously busy, especially on weeknights.

However, I want my family and I to eat healthier, but since I usually go to the grocery store only once a week, I don’t always get to use up the fresh produce before it goes bad. Yet I still want to incorporate fruits and vegetables into my family’s diet, and not just skip them altogether.
